I did ask a few people, most of which had no idea, and one person looked into it and found that they were receiving 55 more today. I'm not sure if they did, bc I called the 'South Loop' store this morning due to it's proximity to my office, and they had 5 left so I just went and scooped one up. Can't speak to the quality just yet, but I can't imagine that I'll be disappointed at that price point.

    Didn't ask about or see any Iberico at either location.


    Had a bunch (Serrano) on the endcap at the Niles store last night. Somewhat depleted from a couple of days earlier.

    Not food related, but has anyone seen Christmas trees at Costco in the area this year? I haven't been to the city locations since just before Thanksgiving, but found myself in Naperville over the weekend and stopped for gas/quick run in and didn't see any.

    From what I can garner on r/Costco, they are having trouble sourcing them at a quality and price combo that they feel their members would value. Seems that they are available at quite a few locations across the country, but definitely not ubiquitous as in years past. I did see some mention of trees sourced from Wisconsin but the poster didn't mention their location...

    We picked one up at the Bollingbrook location on Boughton/355.

    $49.99 Douglas Fir, we are very happy with it!

    Hi- Apparently there is a shortage of fresh Christmas trees this year. It takes 10 years for the trees to mature, and in 2008 a lot of growers were hurting financially and did not plant as many trees. I thought I heard the average tree is $72 this year. There also aren't as many people growing trees as there used to be. Hope this helps, Nancy

    Hi,

    What I have observed with Costco's Christmas tree offerings: they have a narrow window of availability, sell out and move on.

    My family tends to put our tree up late, let it linger and take it down sometime in February. Yes, there have been years where the tree stood for two holiday seasons. It does make Christmas in July an easy task to pull off.

    Regards,

    Another thing with the Xmas trees I read in the Oregonian, 10 years ago, the suppliers of the seedlings for the Xmas tree growers didn't start enough, which is another reason they are in a short supply this year, thus driving the price up a bit.
